The Fight

Martin Luther
Brought the truth
The color of our blood’s the same
So break the chains
And solve the pains
And we all become one race

Fight For Your Rights – Motley Crue

You would think, whats going on in the mind of a drugged out twenty something rocker back in 1985. But here we are 35 years later and the lyrics are not out of line with what is happening today.

One man makes all the policies
While the rest of us get blown away

Rock N Rolls Gonna Save The World – Y&T

Psychopaths are in charge of big economies and psychopaths are in charge of companies who support these kind of Governments.

If you want
Life, life, life
It’s time to break down the chain of command

Life, Life, Life – Y&T

The people are trying to bring change and they are met with loaded guns. The people are trying to bring change and they hope they won’t get sick with the Coronavirus.

There’s only kings and queens
And you’re a pawn in their game
Of masters and slaves

Masters And Slaves – Y&T

Will anything change after it’s all over?

In the last two years the world has had climate protests and they have led to nothing so far. Human rights protests have been happening for a long time and you would think circumstances would changed. I guess we are slaves to masters and instead of chains, we are paid a wage which has to then be paid to other institutions.

It’s the law of the jungle, only winners have rights
The losers relinquish their lives

Masters And Slaves – Y&T

Rules don’t apply to the winners, the wealthy. In Australia, a billionaire businessman returns from overseas and he and his wife are allowed to serve their 14 day quarantine at home, while everyone else needs to serve it in a hotel controlled by the police and the military.

Our PM just announced a home builder scheme that would benefit a company called Bunnings, whose CEO he is pretty cosy with and who advises the Government on policy matters.

I guess the current winners keep on winning.

I hear a siren and I feel the heat
A prowlin’ shark in black and white

Break Out Tonight – Y&T

The Police are meant to uphold the law and yet they abuse it. Remember the song “Cop Killer” from Body Count.

Did that rage against law enforcement ever disappear?

They’ll try to tear you down and fit you in
Break Out Tonight – Y&T

Everyone is born with a dream and a need to love and be loved. Conformity and hate are introduced by society and culture. Break the chains of conformity and don’t let people dictate who you should be or what you should be.

You only live once and it’s short.

So how will you approach tomorrow?

  1. Nothing seems to change. It is a travesty what is happening here in the States right now with race relations. It seems to be getting worse rather than better. Hopefully change is on the horizon, but I am afraid the minute the news stops covering it, people will go back to the way it was, nothing seems to change.

    • News plays a big part. Those images infuriated people. These protests are happening everywhere right now, so it’s not gonna go away anytime soon. But what change happens afterwards who knows. It looks like the main governments are just applying a wait and let it pass approach.
